Preventive Maintenance

Robot Preventive Maintenance


Keeping your robots healthy should be a part of your overall production strategy. Regular scheduled maintenance saves you money by preventing unnecessary downtime, cost of additional repair work, and ensures the quality of your product remains consistent and within set specifications.

RobotWorx provides an On-Site Preventative Maintenance Service to keep robots operating at full capacity. This specific service is for fully functioning robots, still in service and under power. If a robot has completely stopped running, contact us immediately at 740-251-4312.

This on-site maintenance service is not only for robots purchased from RobotWorx - it can also be utilized on any FANUC, Yaskawa Motoman, ABB or KUKA robot, no matter who you originally purchased it from.

When Should Preventative Maintenance Be Performed?

Annual preventative maintenance is typical for all robots. We recommend referencing your robot manual for maintenance guidelines, or you can also call us for information on your specific product.

Any abnormal noise or vibration, low oil in oil glass sights, oil seepage, grease seepage, jerky motion, play in any axis or robot accuracy are also good signs of needed maintenance.

How To Schedule A Preventative Maintenance Service?

Simply call our service department at 740-251-4312, or by filling out an online request form, to schedule an appointment. If you have pictures, model #, SN#, F# or any other information such as backups, this will help speed up the process.
